after the equinox

Somewhere in the world there is a Russian woman looking through a hole in a five dollar bill, and a man plotting a Mustache Tuesday, and another man sitting on a toilet reading a book of poetry by an author who has dark hair and a penis, and a pumpkin on a late-September windowsill (it's open a crack), and a woman reading aloud on a bed, but quietly, and a football team playing in a bright stadium against another football team and someone is wearing the color red and someone else is wearing the color green (I think), and somewhere there are small cats sleeping, and hamsters doing whatever it is they do with newspaper, making nests, that's it, and maybe I want to make a nest, too, but out of shredded documents, and maybe somewhere there's a nest and it's filled with sleeping hamsters, and maybe our noses are pressed to the cool glass, and maybe you'll remember that one time I saved us from something terrible.

Recent FREIGHT love, some tepid LAUNDRY

Tom Williams, author of The Mimic's Own Voice, has written some words about my novel FREIGHT over at Goodreads:

"I was elated by this book. I can't recall feeling so genuinely wistful as I did with Freight."

Read Tom's complete review HERE.

Also, Spencer Dew, author of Songs of Insurgency, has written some words about my chapbook EVERY LAUNDROMAT IN THE WORLD in the new issue of decomP:

"Some of the pieces here seem like scribbled thoughts, sketches rather than compositions, and not interesting sketches."

Read Spencer's complete review HERE.

Thanks to both men for taking the time to not only read my work but to write out their thoughts about it as well.

Lastly, it's September and all is as it should be.
